IMPACT Speaker Series

Impact ScreencapThe weekly series provides Georgia Tech students, alumni and the Atlanta business community an opportunity to network and learn from successful entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, and notable business and non-profit leaders.

Since 2002, the IMPACT Speaker Series has brought highly successful business leaders from a variety of industries to campus to share their experiences and give advice to students and other entrepreneurs on topics ranging from “building a venture around intellectual capital” to “successful entrepreneurship in large organizations” and “socially responsible leadership.”
